Harry Dow Memorial Legal Assistance Fund’s dinner

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am sending this on to you hoping you can attend the Harry Dow Memorial Legal Assistance Fund’s annual dinner on Friday, December 4, 2015 from 6 – 9 p.m. at the China Pearl Restaurant in Boston’s Chinatown.

Harry Dow Memorial Legal Assistance Fund's annual dinner

The Harry H. Dow Memorial Legal Assistance Fund provides resources to ensure access to the legal system for Asian Americans who are deprived of justice because of barriers such as language, race, culture, poverty or immigration status.  The Fund was created in honor of Harry H. Dow, who was the first Asian American admitted to practice law in Massachusetts and who devoted his career to serving the poor and grassroots organizations in Boston’s Chinatown and the South End.  Over the past 30 years, the Dow Fund has launched projects including an Anti-Asian Violence Education Project, an Asian Battered Women’s Project, an Asia Immigrant Rights Initiative,  Cambodian Outreach Projects, the Chinatown Stabilization Project and a Community Internship Program.

This year, we are celebrating our 30th anniversary and we are delighted to feature Attorney Paul Lee of Goodwin, Procter as our keynote speaker and will be honoring the Honorable Fernande R.V. Duffly, Associate Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, Newton residents, May and Tetsuo Takayangi for their tireless commitment to public interest and social justice issues, and the newly appointed Chief of the Fair Labor Division for the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office.

If you cannot attend, would you kindly consider supporting the Legal Assistance Fund with a donation?  Your generous support will enable the Dow Fund to continue to support legal services and education to Asian Americans in our Commonwealth.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  I hope to see you on the 4th!!


Amy Sangiolo

Dow Fund Trustee
